Well, I Declare, Makes a Difference when Public Watching..

Arizona State Senator Gowan has decided to "pull" bill to change AZ constitution, affording AZ Legislators to override voters choice for President...

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/sen-david-gowan-s-plan-to-seize-your-presidential-vote-dies-that-s-a-darn-shame/ar-BB1e14HG?ocid=msedgntp

He’s relying on a provision of the U.S. Constitution that gives state legislatures the authority to decide the manner in which presidential electors are chosen. In fact, the Arizona Legislature decided that manner in 1956 when they passed a law declaring that the winner of the popular vote would get Arizona’s electors.


As for Gowan’s bill, it’s dead for now, but remember that no bad idea is really dead and gone until our leaders turn out the lights at the Capitol and call it a year.

I actually hope it'll come back to life. It seems to me entirely appropriate that we know where our leaders stand when it comes to respecting the will of the little people.

1. Republicans do that in Florida, with voter referendums.

Republicans have no ideas to win on!
Whittling away at our democracy, is all they have left!!
Rotten bunch of scum sucking pigs!

5. Sounds like the Gov's bill would circumvent voting at all.

Why bother if only a handful of people are choosing for you?

7. I just can't get this letting individual states fuck with national elections.

I still remember election night 2000 when Florida suddenly switched from blue to red leading to W stealing the election from Senator Gore.

9. Good point

A minor quibble: Al Gore was Vice President when he ran in 2000.

8. Until we can fix the Fox problem we are spitting in the wind. Fox ruined the minds of tens of

millions who see us libs as weak, socialists giving away the country to illegal immigrants while taking their guns and religion away.

10. Repukes are fascists.

They don't believe in democracy, equality or rule of law. What they do believe in is a theocratic style of fascism Fred Waterford would love. Literally, they're Handmaid's Tale goons. I hate these mother fuckers with every fiber of my being. If they all suddenly collapsed and died, I'd cheer!
